Mid-week and it’s a “Finish”! This post will give you the “back tracking” info to the beginning.
Switching to my little machine for a zig-zag edge finish……. and back to the Juki to hem the opening for the hanger hook at the top……. then on to stitching the front & back pieces together….clip the seam allowance at the arrow (above) to facilitate turning to the right side. Opening up the seam allowances, I topstitched them so that it would have a defined edge, once turned right side out. Insert the hanger. If you are using a plastic hanger, similar to this one, you may find that the hanger may fit better turned one way or the other…the configuration is a tad different on each side of the hanger hook. Add a ribbon at the top (I hand thread tack it in place) …….. and, wha-la……. I love this one. Although the grid stitching is actually more “putsy” than an allover stitching, its simplicity is the perfect touch!
I’m still in “hanger mode”, so…………… Stay tuned……………
